White girl dating korean guy
This isn’t to sound condescending or anything but last I checked, love comes in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and nationalities. While I understand the concern due to white skin being considered the most beautiful on Asian women, Korean men don’t all necessarily feel the same.
But one thing I can tell you for sure is, you should probably be learning Korean and studying up on Korean culture.
After all, how can you truly relate to anyone when you can’t even speak the language?
To be honest, I can’t see any benefits relating to him being a Korean.
Some of the major differences I noticed is there can’t be platonic relationships between the sexes, age is power in Korea, his family (at the beginning) weren’t that accepting of me because I’m not Korean, physical affection here is a no-no, the Aegyo concept, and Korea views appearance or even status in society more seriously than in my country. In my country, it doesnt matter how old you are or your position. They believe in K-drama actors or idols and their characters to the point of thinking all or most Korean men look like one or act like one.
Another misconception is living in Korea is heavenly or a paradise. Many struggles can be felt here especially among foreigners.
I don’t think it is fair to be in a relationship with someone just because of their nationality, especially if you base their culture from the media.
It takes time to get used to the Korean way of life and thinking.
I’m sure this is not specific to Korean men, but due to the rather distinct gender roles.
Compared to other countries, this type of behavior is quite common. A lot of ladies around the globe swoon from the handsome idols on Korean entertainment.
For example my boyfriend will carry my bags, open doors, and help me with anything.
It’s really nice, but for someone who is very independent like me, it can sometimes be annoying.
